''Our most meaningful listening experiences are exercises in empathic exchange. And my history of little secret listening epiphanies are little secrets I've worked to unlock, little gifts of trust from my favorite artists.'' - Ken Ueno


Here are some tunes he has been listening to recently:
1. See You Again - Tyler, the Creator:…

2. 今宵多珍重 - My Little Airport:…

3. Schubert Bb Sonata - Mitsuko Uchida:

Here's a poem by Percy Shelley that has given him comfort during trying times:
To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite;
To forgive wrongs darker than death or night;
To defy Power, which seems omnipotent;
To love, and bear; to hope till Hope creates
From its own wreck the thing it contemplates;
Neither to change, nor falter, nor repent;
This, like thy glory, Titan, is to be
Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free;
This is alone Life; Joy, Empire, and Victory!
